A Single Mother’s Guide to Raising a Son is a fresh look at the realities of single mothers raising sons – from the rarely-heard informed male perspective of a man raised by a single mother. This book dares to go beyond the surface of political correctness to address the pitfalls and misunderstandings that have been preventing millions of single mothers from raising successful, productive, purpose-driven sons for decades. Its message is bold, hopeful, and empowering. Its benefit is real, practical and immediately useful to all those seeking to raise a son into a man the world can be proud of, despite the challenges presented by everyday single-mother life.
